Crestwood introduces rail terminal to North Carolina marketers

November 18, 2015 By    

Kansas City, Mo.-based Crestwood Midstream hosted a pig roast to introduce North Carolina’s propane and natural gas liquid marketers to its new rail facility being developed in Rose Hill, N.C. The new facility is slated to open in early 2016.

About 60 people attended the event, which included propane marketers from across the state, as well as the local police chief and fire chief and staff members of the North Carolina Propane Gas Association.

Andy Ronald, Crestwood’s vice president of commercial development and national accounts, welcomed attendees and provided an overview of the facility. Crestwood’s Max Johnson, southeast marketing representative, and Chris Roth, director of east marketing and supply, were also on site to visit with marketers and answer questions about the site’s storage capabilities as well as the facility’s future services.

The new facility will provide propane marketers across North Carolina and the region with much-needed reliability, the company says. Located east of the Dixie pipeline – southeast of Apex, N.C., and northeast of Cheraw, S.C. – it will bring supply to North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia from multiple shale gas origins. A two-spot truck rack, a five-spot rail rack and 240,000 gallons of storage will enable fast loading of up to 40 trucks per day while eliminating long wait times in the peak periods, according to the company.
